Anthony Volpe Wins the Game, Squirrel Steals the Show
Anthony Volpe provided his first Major League Walk-off, but a squirrel stole the show at Yankee Stadium last night in the Bronx.
Volpe’s sac fly in the ninth inning propelled the Bronx Bombers to a 6-5 win in 10-innings, New York’s fifth consecutive victory to move to 10-games over the .500 mark.

For Volpe, he continues to excel in key moments. Even if the batting average isn’t there, he’s hitting .207, the Watchung, New Jersey native continues to make an impact. Through 21 games in the month of May Volpe has five homers and 12 RBI.
The victory for the Yankees was also another night for an Aaron Judge bomb. The reigning AL MVP hit his 14th homer of the year that tied this game and forced extras.
However, aside from the victory, all anyone could talk about was the furry friend scene scaling across the right field wall. A squirrel stunned fans as he scampered across the top of the wall before doing his best flying squirrel impression and landing onto the warning track. He made it unscathed.
